From my Scottish Historical Romance, "His Wicked Highland Ways":

The man arose from the pool stark naked and
dripping wet, like a god newly formed.

From The Changeling by Madeline Archer (that's me!)

To those unable to see the truth before their eyes, the faery hill was veiled in illusion, appearing as a grassy knoll surrounded by ancient oaks and yew trees.

The Intimacy of Strangers by Lynne King

Mad impulse, adrenalin buzz from having survived unknown assailants and finding this great hunk on my doorstep coming to my rescue, or simply uncontrolled lust, those were my unspoken excuses afterwards.

From A LITTLE ELFY IN BIG TROUBLE, page 201:

No, Bruno thought ironically, your people, the Dark Elfs, did the harassing, did the sniping, made the rude comments, and only ignored people when you weren’t able to blow them to bits. Get your facts straight, Dennis.
